ONE MAD MOM!
Ok girls. It's like this: I'm a Christian, I'm a happily married wife of one husband, I'm a mother of one precious daughter, and I believe in choosing life. I love my God, I love my country, I adore my family--and in today's world, at least in the liberal media--I guess this makes me a bad person. (p.s. guess what? I have also had a J-O-B while being a mother! SHHHHH!)
To be honest, I was on the fence about McCain. I am a lot more conservative than he seems to be and I hadn't been all that excited about the McCain ticket. I love his story, I admire the man greatly, but just wasn't excited. Fred Thompson was my man! When word got out that he had chosen Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, I was beside myself with excitement! It was a BRILLIANT move on his part! I don't care if he just made the final decision at midnight the night before or if he'd planned it all along, it blindsided the liberals and their friends in the media, and it was nothing short of the best move EVER in modern day politics! I believe I echo many American women out there who may or may not be moms--the bias is unbelievable and I, for one, am sick and tired of it! I am ready to stand up and make a difference. I am not sure how that will happen yet, but I plan to figure it out!
I was shocked to wake up Saturday morning and hear the things that were being said about Gov. Palin. The first thing I heard was that the democrats were questioning her ability to be a mother of 5 and V.P. Next, I heard them accusing her of being a horrible mother because she would run for this position while having a handicapped child. I was shocked. The very women who claim to be behind women getting into politics at any cost are now the ones attacking her! Now I am hearing that certain media outlets are demanding a DNA test to make sure this baby is hers! Oh my goodness!! I have never heard such blatant sexism and bias in my life, and I have never been one to bring up such issues.
Today, what sent me over the edge and sent me here to begin this journey was this comment by Sally Quinn (of the Washington Post), an extreme liberal feminist on CNN: " I've been a working mother for 26 years and practically every friend I have is a working mother and works full time. So, uh, I think we are so far beyond that issue of whether women should work or not, in -- uh, certainly in your world and my world. But in the world of evangelicals, that's not the case. Women are supposed to be subservient to their husbands and they are meant to be stay-at-home moms. And women, in fact, are not allowed to be pastors in the Southern Baptist church."
Look, I am a stay at home mom. I homeschool my daughter, and I am proud to hold the title. However, the choices Sarah Palin has made with regard to her career in no way merrit the kind of attacks that have been launched against her. No matter how you feel about working outside the home, surely you'd admit the attacks have been vicious and uncalled for! This issue even crosses party lines. Some in the democratic party are standing up to the radical liberals that have seemingly taken over their party--I say it's about time.
Please feel free to send me your comments...I'd love to hear from you!
